Sage, Women and Creatures

Sage, Women and Creatures


Rudy Rotter (American, 1913 - 2001) was a self-taught outsider artist in the small industrial town of Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

This piece includes the face of a sage which recurs infrequently in Rotter's drawings. While he periodically used what can be assumed to be a rabbi in some pieces, in this instance, it's more likely to have been derived from ancient Chinese art. While the artist was not formally schooled in art, he was curious able all art he encountered in life and books.

The artist created a large volume of artworks that sprang from the creative recesses of his imagination. No two pieces are exactly alike. All of the artist's body of work is easily identifiable as unique to his production.

This piece is framed and has UV resistant plexiglass. Price w/o frame is $1,250. Contact seller to change.

* Sage, Women and Creatures -- magic markers on wallpaper sample - 20 x 12 in. - 1994

Artist info:

re Condition: The art has been stored for decades in an unheated warehouse and is made from donated and scavenged common materials (a usual practice among self-taught artists). Therefore some pieces may show minor signs of age. In such instances, the affected part(s) will be displayed in separate close-up photos.

re UV: This artwork was made before the advent of fade-resistant magic markers. Therefore, if consistently displayed in strong daylight, the art should be framed using UV resistant plexiglass.
